Parma firefighters help deliver baby en route to hospital

PARMA, OH (WOIO) - The Parma Fire Dept. responded to a call of a woman in labor in the shopping center at Pleasant Valley and Broadview Rds. at around 2 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 30.

The patient's husband was taking her to Hillcrest Hospital when they realized they weren't going to make it so he pulled into the parking lot and called the fire department.

Medics David Knecht and Joe Harder arrived within minutes. This was Harder's first delivery assist being hired just a few months ago.

They then transported mom and her new son to the hospital.
